My account, for example was created on December 4, 2016.

The reason why I’m using Terms of Service as a point of reference is simply that you definitely have to agree on their terms before using the service (WhatsApp).

Therefore, it’s safe to say that the day you agree on their TOS is also the day when the account created.
